Lord, I know I weighed first thing this morning, but I’m thinking about getting on these scales again before I eat breakfast? Maybe the numbers went down. I want to see. What do You think? Continue reading Lying scales, No Weight Loss
- Notice: Please read important message at the end. Thank you.
Router died. Called AT&T. New router arriving in four days. No internet. Bad tech day. I’m going to scream! Lord, help me.
Memorial Day family cookout with hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, salad, and peach cobbler. Lord, I want to eat everything, especially dessert in frustration over dead router. But I’m too busy preparing food and serving others. I don’t have time to overeat. This is a weight loss blog, I can’t overeat. Thank you Lord for helping me resist temptation. Good victory day.

It’s almost 8:30 and too late for supper. Do I stop at a fast food place down the highway? I’m not hungry, but I do need to eat something. Earlier I considered fasting this meal? Hmmm . . . It might help me lose some weight. Lord, what do I do?
(8:23 p.m. Yes, I checked. ) Cell phone rings.

I unknowingly posted about a “Spirit Animal” Blog Award. My dear friend, Rachel informed me, “There is no such thing as a spirit animal. Only the Holy Spirit can abide in us if we ask him too. He is all the wisdom we need.:)”
So true Rachel. Thank you for the reminder. I went back and made the necessary changes. The Holy Spirit (Lord) is what delivered me from obesity (over 90 pounds) and I don’t want to hurt His feelings. I owe all that I am to the Lord, Holy Spirit. I appreciate Rachel helping me realize my error. Isn’t that what true friends are for, to help us along the way.
Chape at http://chapeblog.wordpress.com sent me the Spirit Animal award. She’s a personal trainer who encourages you to get up off the sofa and do something, anything. She has a playlist of music to move your body. Wow! How did she do that? Check out her blog for more inspiration. Very motivating.
She asked, “If you could be an animal, which would you be?” Continue reading Yep, I Feel Like A Turtle. (Blog Award)
Sometimes life’s just too funny. So go ahead, laugh. You know God has a sense of humor. Sometimes I think I hear Him laughing, not at me, but with me. Since He has plans for our lives and works out all things for our good, maybe He knew I needed to laugh more. Maybe you do too. So go ahead, laugh. Continue reading Go Ahead, Laugh
Several blog friends have sent me different awards over the last few months and I’ve been very slow in responding. Dear friends, I treasure each award. You honor me and I appreciate your love. I humbly ask your forgiveness.
Now I want to grant each and every one of you an award with some kisses too. But I’m changing the rules. . .
If you read my blog, thank you. If you make comments, I appreciate it. If you share or re-blog my posts, I think I love you.
So help yourself to an award too. Just mention my blog link as a favor. You may answer the award questions if you wish. If your schedule is full like mine, just help yourself to the award without answering questions. Enjoy the fact that you are loved and I want to award you.
It’s after 7p.m. I’m starving. Eating a half tuna wrap for lunch just wasn’t enough. We’ve been visiting out-of-town all day, left for home late, and now he wants to eat supper at this “all you can eat” catfish house on the way. I’m looking at this menu. Lord, help me. Continue reading Catfish With A Kiss
Lord, I’m declaring today “Day One” of a my new maintenance plan. I want to finish losing this weight. It would be nice to say, “I’ve lost a 100 pounds,” but I know it’s just a number. Right now it seems I gained two pounds. Sigh.
My fingers are swollen and I feel fat. I weighed after my usual cups of coffee. Wait, . . . I weighed after drinking a pot of coffee. I should have known better. Sigh.
Help me to walk in victory, victory in obedience to You and what You say, victory over food, and victory over the words and thoughts that pop in my head.
Lord, thank You for being my friend and helping me as I go forth. Direct me as how to please You in all I say and do. And yes, I am hungry for more of You. Teach me how to get full of You and all You have for me. Lord, fill me with Yourself.
This is my plan for my eating today, “Wait until I am hungry.” It seems logical, but Lord, I know what seems logical to us is not always logical to You. So, is this Your will for me?
You may try this for today.
Lord, I don’t think I’ve been overeating. (Eat only three meals with half-servings and no snacks.) Yes, I’ve stuck to the rules, but maybe I’ve eaten too many half-servings. Too many half servings is still too much even if it is a half serving. I know two halves make a whole serving and four halves make two full servings. Sigh. . . .
Lord, I want You.
My child, I AM here.
Lord, I want You.
I AM here.
Thank you. Lord, I want a “new” with You. Grant me a “new” beginning. Fill me with a new filling of You. I want the sweetness of You. I have tasted the sweetness of crème filling, but I want to taste more of Your sweetness. That is sweeter.
My child, I AM here and I will fill you with Myself. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; the old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
I am the Lord your God; who brought you out of Egypt; open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10
Remember the sweet taste of a crème filled donut. Now take a moment to praise God for His sweetness. He is sweeter!
Lord, do You remember her, the world’s oldest body builder?
Yes My child, I know her very well. She’s one of Mine.
Look at her. Wow! Is there is hope for me? Here I am, age 63 trying out this gym experience. Yes, I know I’m weak. Yes, I know You told me to walk, but I confess I’ve been slacking in exercise. Continue reading Gym. You Vote. Yes or No?
